sunflower wedding cake


Last month I had the pleasure to make a sunflower cake for a couple (Sara & Steven) who came from Texas to Miami to celebrate their beautiful wedding!! The wedding seemed like a photo shoot for the uniqueness of all the decorations, but it was a real wedding!! The amazing and beautiful photos are from  Diego and Vanessa in Miami.

The mansion where they get married was perfect for the occasion and they dressed amazingly charming!!

I didn't see the couple but the bride had a beautiful dress with cowboy boots covered by the long beautiful dress matching this detail with  the bridesmaids. The grooms and the guys had cowboy hats.

How To Make Gold Edible Confetti!!

Recently I was asked by one of my long time clients to make a trio cakes for her beautiful birthday sweet table. She wanted to have a main navy blue cake with some hot pink decorations and two little ones with the same color combo This blue is so trendy  and make the table super beautiful as the hot pink make a beautiful contrast!! . She thought in one of my cakes from my second Craftsy class and I loved the idea of transforming the design with these new color combination, which I absolutely looove!!!

 I thought in making the small cakes very simple, keeping the same line as the main one. I opted to decorate one with some gold edible confetti and little sugar flowers and the other one with some chocolate dripping painted in gold.

There are different ways to make these confetti or sequins. The most common is to make fondant cut outs and paint them with gold but I find it very messy and takes forever. Kara has also a different technique making them with gelatin if you want to check it out. As I am always run out of time, I thought in something more simple and fast, so I came out with this idea:

You will need to have:

  1. One sheet of wafer paper

  2. Edible gold leaf

  3. Small circle puncher

  4. Piping gel

  5. Paintbrush

I apply piping gel to the wafer paper sheet section that I want to cover with gold leaf. Make sure that all the surface is well coated without any gap.

I put the gold leaf on top of the wafer paper making sure that is  in the section coated with piping gel

I peel off the gold leaf very carefully

And here we have a super shinny gold wafer paper!!

Now the only thing that we have to do is cut the confetti with one puncher. I used a school one but you can find those more crafty that sell with different sizes, but remember that confetti is small.

Once you have all the confetti or sequins ready,  you just need to attach them to the cake adding a little pipping gel to the back of the pieces with a paintbrush.
